Here's some Sundance screening I'll be watching out for:
Spike Lee has a new film Red Hook Summer about a kid from Atlanta moving to Brooklyn to live with a grandfather he's never met.
One half of the Director of The Puffy Chair, Cyrus and Jeff Who Lives at Home, Mark Duplass is in two films: Safety Not Guranteed and Your Sister's Sister.
Robot and Frank has a good, kooky sci-fi premise: an offbeat buddy movie, set in the near future, about an elderly ex-jewel thief and his new caretaker robot.
About Face looks like a doc that would interest me: Shot in Timothy Greenfield-Sanders' intimate portrait style, participants include Isabella Rossellini, Christie Brinkley, Marisa Berenson, China Machado, Beverly Johnson, Carmen Dell'Orefice, Paulina Porizkova, Jerry Hall, and Christy Turlington among others. They discuss the fashion industry, their careers, aging, plastic surgery, botox, and how they have reassessed and redefined their own sense of beauty.
Just a few that caught my eye. Here's the full list of all 110 features.
